Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx is set to release a new book “This Is Gonna Hurt”

More Music Releases

The multimedia project is the follow up to New York times best-seller, “The Heroin Diaries” and the debut album that produced the “most played rock track of ‘08”


Rock Icon and Syndicated Radio Show Host Nikki Sixx will release “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx", a follow up to his New York Times bestseller, “The Heroin Diaries” in April.   The book, part photo chronicle and part journal, will be accompanied by the release of an original soundtrack from SIXX: A.M., an 11-track companion piece to the book, which will be available from May 2nd.
 
“I’ve always had an eye for the oddities in life. Even as a kid I saw the world in my own way and thought most things that were different were beautiful and magical. Even things that other people thought were horrifying and disgusting and weird. . . People say I have a distorted lens. I think I see things as they really are,” said SIXX.  He continues, “I felt the need to bring my visions to life.  This project is raw, it’s what I see and feel through writing, through photos, through video and through music.”

“This Is Gonna Hurt” is part photo, part journal - a collection of compelling snapshots and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Told with the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller “The Heroin Diaries”, “This Is Gonna Hurt” chronicles Sixx’s experience, from references to his early years filled with toxic waste to his success with Mötley Crüe, his death from an OD and rebirth to his addictions to music, photography, and love along with the journey of photographing these images over the past couple of years.

The accompanying soundtrack from SIXX: A.M., which consists of Sixx, Dj Ashba and James Michael, is a chilling, heavy take on the concept of the book and photography.
 
"This Is Gonna Hurt" will include dozens of Nikki's images and will be the first public viewing of his photography. The book and soundtrack both incorporate the stories behind the pictures and how they came to be, including interviews with the subjects so readers can see "what life is like for those whom society has labeled as freaks."
 
 
The first single from Sixx:AM -  “Lies of the Beautiful People,” will be released in April.  “This is Gonna Hurt” the book, will be released through Harper Collins imprint William Morrow and the accompanying soundtrack through Eleven Seven Music.
